How Do You Find the Time?

Ah, the eternal question. It seems between jobs, school, family, etc. etc. life just gets in the way of your sitting around time, or as Whitman used to call it “loafing.” So how are writers supposed to find time to hear themselves think, let alone write?

I address this query more to my fellow bloggers and fiction writers, but anyone who spends time on an intensive passion in their lives knows what I'm talking about. Everyone has preferable hours when they do their best work. For some that's at the crack of dawn, whereas others prefer to function as night owls.

Regardless of your preference, how do you get your daily dose of writing into your life? Do you set aside specific hours or have a certain word count you aim for each day? Maybe you don't write every day, but instead do every other day or just weekends or only on weekdays. So to sum it up, how do you find the time?
